The Time Is Now
June 7, 2010
This video is worth watching in its entirety. It’s only six minutes long, but boy does it pack a punch. It’s called 'Taking Stock of Our Place in Time’ and in it philanthropist and author Kathy LeMay reflects on the necessity of bringing fierceness and a sense of clear-eyed determination to the work of empowering women and girls for a life-time of justice-based activism.
Kathy spoke these words at the 26th Annual Women’s Funding Network Conference. Held just this past April in Denver, the Network gathered a record number of women from across the globe to, as the theme for the entire conference enjoined, get women to ‘Seize the Moment,’ in order to create structural and long-lasting change for communities throughout the world.
As a global network and a movement for social justice, The Women's Funding Network accelerates women's leadership and invests in solving critical social issues -- from poverty to global security -- by bringing together the financial power, influence and voices of women's funds.
Auburn supports the work of the Women’s Funding Network, and as we equip women from across faith traditions with the tools they need to heal and repair the world, we add our institutional voice to the chorus of activists, educators, donors and leaders world-wide who understand the vital role women must play in social transformation for all.
